97. "we need to beat them with facts"--yes, but you're not presenting facts.
You're making claims based on your speculation.

In your hypothetical, if people lie to exit pollsters, why would only Republicans lie? What is anyone's motivation for lying to a pollster (rather than tell them they prefer not to participate)? And if your Republican witnesses would lie to pollsters how credible would they be in court? Besides, what might happen in a lawsuit is not the primary concern at this point. We're talking about finding the truth about what happened in this election and what is needed to make corrections going forward.

There are always errors or weaknesses in data--including errors in your preferred sworn testimonies and paper ballots. But to presume that some error renders the exit data useless and that the electronically recorded voting results are free from error (even after considering the information others have offered here and elsewhere as to why to be concerned about those results), is not good empiricism.
